Following a tough election cycle, the 117th Congress is narrowly divided between Republicans and Democrats. As a result, the Problem Solvers Caucus (PSC) is slated to play an outsized role in bringing lawmakers together to pass meaningful legislation and move our country forward.
I’m honored to once again serve as a vice chair of this bipartisan group and I’m especially excited that we have expanded our ranks to 56 members – 28 Republicans and 28 Democrats – from every corner of the country. In Michigan alone, five members of our congressional delegation – including two new additions – will work together to advance the interests of our state and deliver for Michiganders.
In the past, the PSC has been credited with helping pass a comprehensive COVID-19 relief package and addressing the humanitarian crisis afflicting children and families at our southern border.
Now more than ever, we need bipartisanship. The PSC is ready to roll up our sleeves, get in the room, and leave our party identities at the door. Fighting, blaming, and partisan bickering do nothing to help the millions of Americans struggling amid this awful pandemic.
The historical challenges we face demand bipartisan solutions, and I am ready to do my part to find common ground and solve our nation’s toughest problems – together.
